Famous quotes containing the word providence:

    I never could believe that Providence had sent a few men into the world, ready booted and spurred to ride, and millions ready saddled and bridled to be ridden.
    Richard Rumbold (1622–1685)

    I don’t believe in providence and fate, as a technologist I am used to reckoning with the formulae of probability.
    Max Frisch (1911–1991)

    Let the torpid Monk seek heaven comfortless and alone—GOD speed him! For my own part, I fear, I should never so find the way: let me be wise and religious—but let me be MAN: wherever thy Providence places me, or whatever be the road I take to get to thee—give me some companion in my journey, be it only to remark to, How our shadows lengthen as the sun goes down.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)
